SHANGHAI–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jul. 28, 2019
YOOZOO Games is limbering up for an epic gaming marathon next month, as gamers all over the world get ready to turn their on-screen efforts into meals; all in support of the WFP’s fight against hunger in some of the world’s most vulnerable regions.

Gaming fans will get to enjoy exclusive gameplay features and events during the week-long initiative; by joining in they will be helping to raise crucial funding for the World Food Programme. The premise is simple: the more you play, the more YOOZOO donates. #GTarcadeHungerHeroes is a call from GTarcade to experience, to share and to make more people aware of the existence of hunger — participating in fun, charitable activities that will aid WFP in their mission to solve food shortages.
YOOZOO Games said “For 10 years we’ve been incredibly fortunate to bring simple joy to millions of people around the world, through video games. The support we’ve received from our loyal fans has allowed us to support a variety of important causes. This year, we want to push the boundaries even further and help provide urgent support to those who truly need it the most.”
For the GTarcade marathon, YOOZOO has set up a team page on the World Food Programme’s ShareTheMeal site. All money raised will help important WFP projects addressing hunger, promoting food security, and providing food assistance.
There are three ways that you can get involved with GTarcade’s Hunger Heroes event and help raise money in the fight against hunger:
1) Tweet a picture of your smile meal with the hashtag #GTarcadeHungerHeroes. For every tweet you send, YOOZOO games will donate one meal to the WFP.
2) Join in the GTarcade gaming marathon. From August 12th to 18th, for every hour of livestream play YOOZOO Games will donate one meal to the WFP. As an added ‘marathon bonus’ — 2 hours of livestream play will be also be rewarded with $10 in-game coins, while over 12 hours will yield $100 dollars’ worth of in-game coins.
3) Get exclusive in-game features by joining the Hunger Heroes Gaming Marathon. Collect four in-game treasure chests or wings, which can be exchanged for one meal donation to the World Food Programme. Players will then get to see their favourite characters turning those items into meals for the World Food Programme’s ShareTheMeal campaign.
